Music, like the other fine arts, is what feeds the soul and touches the body, moving it. Anyone who has grown up with a musically talented parent knows the tremendous part that music plays in one's memory. And, anyone who has "been acquainted with the night" as Robert Frost put it, knows and can relate to the Blues.
Music can fit our moods, as well.sometimes we are in harmony with what music says and it talks to us, and pulls at our hearts in most unusual ways, nurturing, comforting, commiserating, exhilirating, soothing, strengthening us against the dark. What would life be like without it? Terribly cold and silent, indeed.
